London 2012 Olympics

The London Olympics 2012

In July of 2005, London were awarded the 2012 Olympic Games.  There were five main candidates: London, Moscow, New York, Madrid, and Paris.  After 3 rounds of voting, just two candidates were left; London and Paris.  Paris were the favorite to host the Olympics but the International Olympic Comity President, Jacques Rogge announced to the world that London had won with 54 votes to Paris’s 50.  The Olympic Games will be held from the 27th July-12th August 2012.  Currently, the athletics stadium is being built in London.  It is called the Olympic Stadium and will seat up to 80,000 people.  After the Olympics, the stadium will still be used, but will be reduced to just 25,000 people because it will be easier to maintain.  The Olympic Village is estimated to cost £1 billion.  It will include 2,800 flats that will accommodate all of the athletes participating in the games.  I hope everyone enjoys the 2012 Olympic Games in London!
